Our aim Is to prepare individuals for employment, equipping them with the generic underpinning knowledge, transferable skills and competencies across occupational sectors, also to assist individuals to secure and sustain employment, obtain a Modern Apprenticeship, or progress into full-time education. Individuals will work towards the Certificate of Work Readiness which includes Work Placement participation being a minimum of 27 days. They will also engage in activities to include job searching, interview skills, job applications, and letter writing. Individuals will attend College for 1/2 day per week during the Work Placement element of the programme. Individuals will develop skills in working with others and as part of a team (such as a team building session, enterprise activity or a community project).

Where appropriate individuals may complete sector specific training (qualifications) such as World Host (Customer Service), Food Hygiene or CSCS.
